The Role Opportunity Overview

While 95% of the time you will focus on the maintenance needs within the refinery, on occasion, you will also support basic pipeline maintenance, such as changing filters on the line. All of your work will be generated via a work order system. Typically, you will complete two to three work orders each shift.

You will work the day shift and complete your daily duties in conjunction with another Refinery Maintenance Technician. Daily duties could include, but will not be limited to, cleaning up the plant, fixing leaking or broken pipes, repairing or replacing exchangers, installing or repairing steam and condensate tubing, changing tanks and filters, insulation projects, and painting.

  • Receive orders from the Maintenance Supervisor.

  • Follow all environmental procedures and report all safety and environmental incidents and concerns to your supervisor immediately.
  • Use your strong mechanical and pipe fitting skills regularly, while doing your job.
  • Strictly follow instructions, policies and procedures.
